SEND TO A FRIEND:

    I have always been a firm believer of things

    happening for a reason. But then doctors found a tumor- and that confused me a little. & I started to question everything in my life. But after surgery and removal of the tumor, I realized that the hardest part was to be patient. Wait for time to pass to recover. Wait for time...

    When I was a child I loved microscopes.

    I thought it was like looking into another world of secret little mysteries. But as I grew up life happened, my family hit some hard times and my marks suffered in school. I barely graduated high school and knew I would never be smart enough for anything so I gave up. I played...

    If your life is not the way you want it,

    do not sit down and wait for changes. There is no one else but you that can change it.

    “I believe that everything happens

    for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together...

    I had a little old lady come up to me today in

    a parking lot and started talking to me out of the blue. She had a warm and kind face, sort of weathered as if she's spent a lot of time outside. Anyways, she rested a hand on my arm to look at me and say, "It's okay to let go of those who hurt us the most." She smiled kind of a...

    I am blessed that i've been tested lately

    and always been testing because when Allah wants things to happen they happen such miraculously and everything falls into place so beautifully that it amazes you. It feels like a spiritual journey or in my case it really was for me.

    There was a time, when I was really struggling

    with my life, I was broken beat and scarred... but today, when I look back, I realise why I had to go through those experiances. it all makes sense in the end. Everything happens for a reason.

    You meet people, have a few laughs,

    exchange some good conversation, offer some advice, share your heart. Then they leave. Live. Die. Repeat. There was a purpose fulfilled in both of us.

    I walk in the room to see my baby girl for the first time.... She lays there so helpless, tubes down her throat and in her nose.  IV's are attached everywhere.I start to cry as the tears roll down my cheeks.   All I can think to do is sing to her as I did every day when she...

    I always say this to myself

    and also to other people who are going through a really hard time. If someone comes into your life there is always a reason for them, and if they leave well it doesn't mean that it's the end of the world, it just means that they are no longer apart of your story so their chapter...

    Knowing you can live without someone

    but not wanting to is the ultimate dilemma. Do you stay still due to a sense of safety, real or imagined? Do you leave, closing the door to a past that helped define you up until now? Change is something that is coveted by many but feared by everyone at the same time. How do...

    I am not so sure about that.

    I’ve heard people reason that bad things happen to open the door for something good to follow. Really? If there is a god or higher power, I don’t believe that he would be so cruel to bring bad things over our life paths so that good things can follow. Yes, surely if...

    I have been through some serious ish in my life.

    Some things, I believe, that would have completely broke some people. However, I don't dwell on the past. I don't let these things define who I am, but instead, I accept what has happened and accept that everything happens for a reason. These things have helped me to grow into...

    but now I wonder if things do. Because everything that we've experienced prepares us on how to handle them.
